1 doctor agrees
In brief: ALLODYNIA/HYPERALGES
Theorotically it is possible for both to co exist but these are two distinct conditions with different etiologies and it is not so common to see them in same person.
Allodynia is feature of painful conditions like neuropathies, complex regional pain syndromes, post herpetic neuralgia, fibromyalgia and migraine and hyperalgesia is pain limited to viscera with different etiology.
